How do you detect slab leaks in Mesa, AZ?
When the leak detector arrives onsite, they will typically check your water meter first. If the water meter is registering water use, but no water is running in the home, it’s a good sign a hidden leak is present. After checking the water meter, the leak detector will check all plumbing fixtures in the home including the hose-bibs and shut off valves to the irrigation and pool (if necessary). By checking the fixtures, it can allow the leak detector to isolate which section of your plumbing the leak is present. Once isolation is completed, leak detection instruments are used to pinpoint the leak. This equipment typically consists of thermal imaging, water line locators, and sound devices.
Once you find it, can you fix it?
Yes. Once the leak is found, a repair option can be composed right onsite. Typically, repairs can be made same day. Most slab leak repairs take 4 to 8 hours to complete.
If the leak is located under my slab, how do you go about fixing it?
There are ultimately two options for fixing slab leaks. The first option being a direct access repair. This would consist of removing the flooring, section of concrete slab, and excavating under the home to access the leaking pipe. Once the pipe is repaired, the concrete and flooring can be replaced or re-installed. The more common repair for slab leaks is called “re-routing”. This is a term that is used to explain the process of abandoning the old leaking line under the slab, and re-routing a new water line from your water supply to the fixture.
How much does slab leak detection in Mesa AZ cost?
Most leak detection costs in Mesa will range from $99 to $250. The variability in costs will come from the type of leak, pipe material, size of leak, and size of the property. Larger more expansive properties may take additional time to pinpoint leaks. Certain piping material poses challenges in leak detection, due to the fact that some pipe materials can’t be detected when they are buried underground, therefore making the leak more challenging to detect. The size of the leak can also play a role in cost. Larger leaks are easier to locate. Very small pinhole leaks may take more time to locate.
